A professional coffee shop in the Waterloo Industrial District in Sydney, Australia, designed by Melbourne-based architecture and interior design studio Alana Cooke. Covering an area of 58 m, the cafe offers high-quality products and coffee education. The carefully planned interior is restrained, but passionate and inclusive, and the atmosphere is calm.
This is a typical upside-down cafe. The hardwood counter forms a bizarre, finely executed element that clings to the walls and runs the length of the space. The equipment and process are externally oriented to engage customers visually in the coffee making process. Shared circulation allows a conceptual experience more akin to home hospitality -- our space is your space -- simplifying service functions.
